There’s been a few things I found recently that seemed worthy of passing along. First off is the mysterious myspace artist known as Milk / Logyu. I found her work a little while ago due to random site called NotCot. She has no portfolio site, or really any information out there. There’s pretty much only her myspace profile that tells you that she’s 32 and from Tuscon, and her mind blowing work. What I love so much about it is her use of tiny continued themes, such as her skeleton birds, cards with hearts, and mp3 players. Have fun perusing her fascinating work. I wonder if her work only exists in the digital world?
Next is an oddly equally fascinating medieval beastiary. It’s truly fun to explore. It has a huge list of creatures, with each one having examples of medieval art and an explanation of what it was, along with bibliographic sources for the earliest references. Sure, it has all the standard creatures like hyenas and dragons, but it also has weird ones like … Barnacle geese?? And also, who knew that asps were originally lion- like creatures that guarded trees. To avoid being lulled to sleep by music, the asp would keep one ear pressed to the ground, and the other plugged with its tail.
The one other thing worth passing along is that I’ve been working to clear out my flickr backlog. I have unsorted and un-uploaded photos that go back to the last fourth of July. So if you follow my flickr feed, please enjoy chronologically random stuff that should be showing up over the next bit or so.
